No Rice Cooker Method

This recipe can easily be made on the stove.  You’ll need a medium sized saucepan with a tight fitting lid. Follow the same directions as above, but add the SAME amount of water as you do of rice. 4 cups of rice means you add 4 cups of water to the saucepan. Bring to a boil and then cover and lower the heat to low.  The rice should take about 20 minutes to cook. Fluff with a fork and sprinkle in Parmesan cheese before serving.
